This is a love story.
Well, a skincare related love story, but still a love story.
I first met Aurelia Skincare’s products during a photo assignment in 2014. My journalist friend and I were sent to the founder’s house, an amazing and inspiring woman called Claire Vero. There, we spent a whole afternoon talking about organic beauty, holistic treatments, and the science of probiotics, something that Aurelia focuses on. We were gifted some of the products to try at home, and since then, I’ve been constantly back to their website to re-stock on their beautiful products.
It’s a luxury, yes.
But wouldn’t you do anything for love too?
About Aurelia Cell Repair Night Oil
I’ve always been a fan of oils for my skin, especially night oils. For me, they add to my relaxation routine before bed, along with a face massage and aromatherapy (I try to get the ones that smell amazing like Aurelia Skincare Cell Repair Night Oil). Of course, they also add an extra layer of moisture, necessary at all times of the year but mostly during winter, when the constant dry air from the heater and the lack of sun makes me look like a grey vampire.
Not a good look.
This is what Aurelia’s website has to say about Cell Repair Night Oil:
An award-winning intensive overnight boosting treatment which works in tandem with the skin’s natural nightly repair mode.

First Impression: My Thoughts and Opinions On Aurelia Cell Repair Night Oil
My thoughts about Aurelia Skincare Cell Repair Night Oil? I love it.
Is it perfect? No, it is not – and personally I don’t think it fulfills all of its promises, which is very upsetting when you spend £62 on it. I know! I do everything for love, skincare included, or not.
I love its amber packaging with a vintage pharmaceutical look. I love the pale pink and gold label. And I love how it smells – I know, you are tired of hearing how much I am a sucker for lovely-smelling beauty products! – but I must say it does smell amazing, even if I do repeat myself. Aurelia Skincare Cell Repair Night Oil is so relaxing with its mandarin, lavender, and rose notes, perfect for a face massage at the end of the day.
It reminds you of beautiful things. Seriously.
Its base of sweet almond oil and hemp oil makes the texture super malleable and smooth, perfect for a massaging your face at the end of a long day (or any time, really).
It’s recommended for all skin types, although personally, I must say I find it a bit greasy on mine (I do put more than the recommended quantity though, so I only have myself to blame). I also like mixing it with my night cream for a boost of moisture and an extra kick of aromatherapy as I close the day.
Good vibes only.
I’ve been using it on and off for about six months now. Come on, it’s pricey! There’s no way I’ll use my precious Aurelia Skincare Cell Repair Night Oil every night. No way.
So I’ll use it on my special beauty evenings when I need an extra dose of relaxation, or add it to my moisturizer if I feel my skin is getting way too dry. I bought it to give my skin some luxurious time off, and that part of the deal is 100% done.
What I Like & Dislike Aurelia Cell Repair Night Oil
- amazing smell with a relaxing blend of essential oils
- super moisturizing and plumping
- excellent for a face massage
- slightly greasy on my skin (possibly due to quantity)
- price! I mean, it is a luxury skincare brand
- doesn’t absorb quickly
So my final verdict for Aurelia Skincare Cell Repair Night Oil is… I love it!
Despite its price, I do think I would buy it again (my first trial with this product was a sample). I alternate my beauty products and skincare a lot, so I get the chance to try everything out there, but I always find myself coming back to Aurelia’s products because they smell amazing and have a lovely texture too.
It’s also my #1 recommendation whenever a friend asks for a reliable, vegan, and all-natural skincare brand. If that’s your case, by all means, try their products!
